The purpose of this project is to part-fund a professional print-run of the B/X Monster Reference Index. The index will present basic stats for over 500 monsters in a convenient easy-to-use format.
The index will take the form of a 24 page, A5-sized, spiral-bound book. It will be litho-printed on premium 170gsm silk art paper, with 300gsm silk art covers. It will also be released as a $2 PDF on RPGNow.com.
The monsters in the index include creatures from several sources. They are all open content. Some creatures have been converted from 1st Edition Advanced or other compatible rule sets as required. More information on how the monsters have been selected can be found on my blog here: http://oubliettemagazine.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/bx-monster-reference-index-sources.html
Depending on the final layout of the booklet I hope to have a few pages spare that will be filled with extra reference tables. If possible, I'd like to have most of the tables you'd expect to find on a GM's screen.

Risks and challenges
This is my 14th Kickstarter project. All my past projects were delivered on or ahead of schedule. My golden rule when running a Kickstarter Campaign is to only launch a new project after the rewards from the previous campaign have been dispatched.
If the project is very successful (over 200 backers), I will clear time in my schedule, to ensure everything is mailed as quickly as possible. If the project is phenomenally successful (over 1000 backers) then I will put additional resources in place as required.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
